Kevin and his sailing boat "Clipper"

While on Magnetic Island Kevin got the sailing boat bug. He started looking at boats, I suggested he place an add on gumtree asking for any boat someone want removed or project boat no longer wanted. Kevin received two replies. On Friday Kevin rang Laurie to arrange a visit to his project boat. We arrived and Kevin was shown the full history of "Clipper" in paper work. Clipper is an Alan Buchanan wooden sail boat which has circumnavigated the world twice. It is an older style boat which looks quite pretty, well we think so. Antifouling the bottom of the boat was the first job, Kevin received a call from Laurie on Sunday  advising Clipper would be moved to the boat yard the following day. 

 

The boat is now on land while Kevin proceedes with anitfouling. Everything is a mystery to both of us, but with google and advice from those in the know at the boat yard things are progressing. Isn't Clipper pretty.
